About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my little arty world! Trying to make art is a huge part of my life ... love nothing more than messing around with inks and sprays and generally making a mess!

Ok hands up ... I am cheating
but at least I am here!

The observant amongst you will recognise the piece of work on my desk and know I have already blogged it as, yes, this is last week's desk

Had the photo all ready to join in with the weekly blog-hop that takes place over at The Stamping Ground and courtesy of the simply wonderful and vrey much loved Julia but it was already Thursday by the time I realised Wednesday had come and gone so I missed the boat
considered posting very late on the Thursday but figured if I was late I might as well be very late ...so here I am ... on time but also late!

To remain true to the blog-hop I have also added a photo of my desk right now so you can see not much has changed ... a new photo' of great-nephew Henry as they finally managed to get his hair cut just in time for the wedding and his beautiful, handsome face emerged from under the mop of hair

The spanners are not a project ... well, the smaller one might be but the large one is acting as a counter-weight to stop my board from tipping forward as I have to pull it a good four inches off the edge of my desk in order to work more comfortably.  
They were daddy's spanners so the weepies often come calling as I have not yet quite gotten my head around him not being here and spanners and such were, well, they were just daddy

Will stop there or this post will take me on a trip down a road I don't wish to travel today

Will blog this next photo' separately too but is a small project I managed to do on Monday - the least said about yesterday the better as it was a rotten old day ... and I fully aim on today being a whole lot better!

Inspired by Finnabair who did a project on clear perspex/acrylic - but all will be explained in a separate post as I really should only show you my desk today 

Happy WOYWW'ing fellow bloggers
